Women who have sex with circumcised men have a much lower risk of developing cervical cancer than those who have relations with men who haven't been circumcised.
According to an article published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, doctors studied a large group of women in various age groups.
They found that women who had sex with partners with foreskins had a higher cancer rate than those who did not. The more sex partners they had, the greater their risk.
Women who had relations with many high-risk men had twice the cancer risk of other women. Why? We don't know for sure.
While circumcision may help women prevent cancer, it also has at least one potential health benefit for men: It may cut the risk of urinary tract infections.
Circumcision does cause pain in male infants and remains largely a cultural choice.
